Went for first time for a birthday dinner. They've been there for a long time so thought it should be ok. Never again. There was a whole cricket in my daughters water and they didn't even really apologize or offer anything to try and make up for it. The food really wasn't that good either. Burnt hamburger bun, not much... More

Our friends turned my husband and I onto this fun restaurant. My husband LOVES spicy food and I am pretty boring when it comes flavor. He had the Jalepeno pie for an appetizer and the RSJ Burger. He really enjoyed both. I had the wedge salad and it was delicious. My friend ordered a guacamole appetizer...and even I Loved it!... More

Delicious food, fun atmosphere, caring staff. I go for the sweet potato pancakes with homemade apple butter, and the smashed potatoes. But most of all info for the six shooter, which is the tastiest marinated skirt steak! Neighborhood favorite.

This very well could have been the exception at R.S. Jones, but it's just my honest experience. I came here with a guest on a Thursday night. It was past 8pm and still had a very good crowd. There was a singer who sang standard pop songs. (The Police, Neil Diamond etc). The $3 margarita was awesome. What a terrific... More

This restaurant has been around for many years and as soon as you walk in, you will know why! RS Jones is a wonderful place- southwest funky decor with all sorts of knickknacks and personal photos. Everyone who steps through their doorway feels like they are visiting a favorite relative. The staff is warm, friendly and attentive. The menu is... More

We only picked up from here & really liked it. The menu is unique & is a welcome change from the standard pizza/Chinese options around here. Love the New Orleans/BBQ flair & had an awesome, healthy meal- piled high veggies, rice & chicken with just a little kick.
